Book Title: Historical thinking for senior secondary students: A collection of teaching and learning activities 2022
Subtitle: A resource created by Deakin pre-service History teachers
Book Description: The teaching and learning activities in this book were designed by pre-service History teachers at Deakin University, Australia. The activities cover a wide range of topics from ancient history through to early twenty-first century history and are designed to develop students' historical thinking.
Most learning and teaching activities that get created in initial teacher education courses never get seen again once they are assessed as part of an assignment. However, pre-service History teachers undertaking a Master of Teaching at Deakin University have created and shared some of the learning and teaching activities they designed as part of a renewable assignment. This Open Education Resource (OER) contains activities on ancient history, empires, twentieth century world history and even early twenty-first century history, with a focus on building historical thinking. It showcases their emerging content and pedagogical understanding as well as their capacity to engage with open pedagogy and design copyright compliant materials. Although the activities have been mostly designed around the curriculum requirements of the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), they are easily adapted to fit other state and international curriculum contexts.
